Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

Athena, Zeus, and Poseidon in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

I recently rewatched Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and was struck for the first time by the relationship between Poseidon and Athena. (Yes, I’m sorry, once again this post is not strictly brother/sister.) This got me thinking about their relationship in other movies, and when I started discussing that, I inevitably began reviewing other relevant relationships in those movies, and so this is too long and a giant mess. And it’s full of ships that are based on wisps of nothing.

Mr. Robot – Elliot/Darlene

I received a lot of messages about the surprise canon incest in Mr. Robot, so I know a lot of you watch it, but for those of you who don’t, let me start off by recommending the show itself. It is very good. It’s smart, it’s modern and topical, it’s stylized, it is well-planned, and compelling. The incest definitely provided some impetus for me, but all the good things I was hearing is the main reason why I decided to watch, and I definitely do not regret it.

Mr. Robot has aired 8 episodes of its first season so far, two more until the finale. (It was renewed for a second season before it had even premiered.) I’m a bit wary, writing anything about such a crazy series, right in the middle of a crazy revelation, before the season finale. But… I did it anyway. I hope people looking back on this from the future will be forgiving.

It centers on Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), our narrator, a hacker who gets involved with a group called fsociety that is attempting to take down the largest corporation in the world – the corrupt E Corp. Elliot has some mental and social issues and he’s very lonely. During the day he works at a cyber-security firm with his best friend from childhood, Angela. He also has a psychiatrist, Krista, and an antagonist of sorts, Tyrell Wellick, who is an executive at the aforementioned corporation. He has a morphine addiction, and has a friends-with-benefits arrangement with his drug dealer Shayla. The rest of the cast are members of fsociety – the enigmatic Mr. Robot (Christian Slater), the saucy Darlene, and a few other quirky characters.
